Good days climbing yesterday with my bro and Lou :)

We did four climbs:
Morgan   VD *   
Ancientcy   VD *
Modernity   VD *
Keyhole Crack   VD *

We had one bit of good protection that was near the top of the climb and that was on Ancientcy. The rest of the climbs seemed to be pretty void of placements for the top half but the rock was good and the climbs weren't too hard.

Modernity



Lou bustin' some moves on Modernity


Keyhole Crack


Gerdy on the last section of Keyhole Crack


Lou and I getting ready for the next climb


Me climbing the first bit of Morgan


Lou on the tricky section of Morgan


Gerdy on Ancientcy and almost forgetting to take the gear out


Nice thread near the top of Ancientcy
